Sam’s studio is wherever she sets her pack down for a break or for the night. Using oils and a pochade box she paints off the beaten path, capturing landscapes only accessible on foot or via her beloved Jeep Wrangler. She’s been backpacking for six years, offroading for three, and a parent to an awesome little adventure baby for a year and a half.
She favors the rugged, vast desert lands and imposing geology of Joshua Tree, Death Valley, and the Grand Canyon. She also also enjoys exploring the local San Gabriel Mountains, the shorelines of the Channel Islands and anywhere else adventure calls either solo or with her family.
Sam is an independently taught artist and worked as a concept illustrator in scenic theming projects for companies such as Disney, Third Street Promenade Santa Monica, and Bass Pro. Now she’s taking a radical leap from the exacting requirements of concept illustration to the utter freedom of the landscape. With expressive brush- and knife-work she focuses on sharing her experience of the wild found in the deserts, mountains and rugged shorelines she calls home.

Welcome to my website!
Here’s where you can view my portfolio, read about my latest on-trail and artistic adventures, purchase a print or a painting or say hello via Facebook or on Instagram.
Recovering from major depression, anxiety and PTSD is an every day adventure. It’s a journey I’m not shy about discussing. On my blog you’ll find some brutally honest descriptions of what it’s like to live, explore, and create with these illnesses. That’s not all you’ll find, though! I enjoy sharing photos and art and the adventures my family and I embark on as my son grows up to enjoy the outdoors.
Thanks for visiting!
